TU#05: Multimodal Articulations of Futures in an Afghan-Danish Film Collective

The Emergent Futures CoLab (EFC) invites you to its fifth online Talking Uncertainty session: Multimodal Articulations of Futures in an Afghan-Danish Film Collective, on Wednesday March 16, 2022, 10:30 am – 12:00 pm EST.

This talk will highlight the collaborative filmmaking activities of Afghan-Danish women and a Danish anthropologist and filmmaker who engage in multimodal experimentations and ethno-fiction. Specifically, they script scenes and film the everyday as a way of exploring and giving form to inner life as well as social and public life. The women in the collective use collaborative filmmaking and social media tools to co-articulate their imagined futures, and what it means to be both Danish and Afghan.
